will several dui's before 2000 disqualify me from getting a cdl?

(Columbus ohio USA)

I quit drinking 2 yrs ago.I got my first dui in nov 1982 and my last in 1999. I have a total of 8. I'm wondering if there is a chance I could get a cdl since it's been so long since my last one and I quit drinking 2 yrs ago. I live in central ohio. I appreciate any feed back. I know it sounds like a lot of them but really it is'nt compared to the thousands of times I drove and didn't get pulled over and there are millions of people who do the same and never get pulled over. Just wanted to put that in there. Hey if I don't ask I'll never know the answer. Thanks

Thanks for the reply I appreciate that. Yes I would like to find a job driving,just to let you know. So with that out there do you think I could find a job and a Cdl even in another state. I know what you said about Ohio. Also how would I go about finding out the truth without someone being an idiot and giving me info that's not correct. Thanks for any additional info.

You asked about obtaining a cdl, not a job. FMCSA rules are worded so you can get it as long as you didn't have a CDL or CLP at the time of all the offenses.
Some state CDL statutes are worded so you can get it as long as you didn't have a CDL at the time of the offenses. Not sure about Ohio. You'll have to check Ohio statutes. Read very carefully!

Are there no other Truckers who would know the answer to this Question. Real answers not slams or something like that. Something that could really help, with a positive answer that is not just your opinion.
Thanks
